sandy survivor needs our help!!!!!

I am asking for everyones help. The man in the picture is a 73 year old gentleman whos life was devistated like many others on the night of 10/29/2012. He was a victim of Superstorm Sandy. He was and still is a resident of Union Beach NJ, in which we are all aware that this small town suffered almost the worst amount of damage. With the help from FEMA, he was able to repair some of the damage, and replace none of the necessities. Having no further options he used ALL of his savings to attempt to continue to live life after Sandy. He recieves a small amount from social security monthy, which barely covers his medical needs, utilities and food. On Feburary 21, 2014 (yesterday) he recieved a letter from the Boro of Union Beach. Due to the stress of the storm and exhusting all of his savings he never paid his taxes. The letter states that if he doesnt pay by March 7th 2014, his home will be up for tax sale. Has has been a resident in Union Beach ( same house) for twenty five years. I am writing to ask for everyones help! He worked all of his life, paid off his home and after one storm, everything he has worked extremely hard for is going to be taken away. I have personally contacted every agency I recieved numbers for from 211, and I also contacted FEMA on his behalf. The programs are a lengthy process to recieve any grants, or the programs have already expired. PLEASE HELP!
